Liveable Streets review

There is a review going on for the Bethnal Green area, which I publish here, as it also concerns us what happens in our area.

The following message was sent by Becca Jordan to the Weavers Community Forum:

“You will have likely have seen improvements to Bethnal Green’s streets, leading to a significant reduction in traffic. There are however increases in traffic where approved closures have been paused and concerns have been raised from residents regarding severance, particularly for north south journeys.

We are therefore undertaking a review and are speaking to residents, businesses and the emergency services to assess the impact of the scheme and see how we can make amendments to address concerns, whilst retaining the benefits of reduced traffic secured by the scheme.”

Key areas of focus are:

  • emergency service access throughout the area
  • Warner Place/Squirries Street
  • The closures at Pollard Road, Barnet Grove, Old Nicole Street
  • Ropley Street
  • Arnold Circus

Tower Hamlets would therefore like to invite your group to attend a drop-in consultation session on the local Bethnal Green Liveable Streets scheme.

Great community parties today

Our local area was buzzing with parties today. There was a community picnic as Jesus Green and walking past I could see the Wellie throwing contest and of course at Arnold Circus was a wonderful festivity with racing around th circus for bicycles, hoola hoops, concert, free food and drink and goodie bags from the Bethnal Green Technology College. The free face paint was superb and for the collectors they gave out a free antique looking map of the area.

Mick Jagger was right after all when he foresaw that there will be dancing in the streets.
